Psychometrics for those who haven't come across the ideas before is refreshingly straight forward in principle: all individuals are different so all individuals have different skills, ability, confidences and needs.
If you can recognise your own preferences and challenges you can raise your effectiveness and enjoyment of your work: by adjusting the way you work to best suit you. However if you can recognise the preferences and challenges your colleagues present, then you can raise the effectiveness of the whole team by adjusting the way you all work together.
We offer two approaches to psychometrics with slightly different styles, both have a testing system that we can administer which can give each member an individual report as well as a report detailing how the team fits together. The best way to really get to grips with the principles is to see them in action - as well as testing we can make the ideas easy to understand for all levels of the organisation and even better, offer a set of targeted real life challenges to bring the principles to life and test them in real situations.
The Meyers Briggs Type Index provides a constructive, flexible framework that can be applied to all areas of human interaction and personal development. The MBTI profile reveals how we see and interact with the world, giving insight into our motivation and the motivation of others. This provides a strong foundation for personal growth and development, underpinning enhanced personal effectiveness.
Qualified practitioners are experts in applying the tool in an ethical way, that acknowledges the role of each individual in determining their own type.
